Short Rows

As the old saying goes in this part of the world, I am in the "short rows" now. Simply meaning one more day after today and my sweet wife, our precious puppy and I will be making our journey to a spot that is dear to our hearts. I could never tire of the mountains and have always wished I had been born in that part of the country instead of the flat lands. Maybe it's time for a little clarification regarding the title of this blog, The Simple Life. That is truly what I desire, but that does not mean I experience it on a daily basis. Quite the opposite most of the time. You see for 30 years I have been in the office machine service world and for most of that time I have been a service manager. I have 5 guys that I try to keep busy and on the right track which is quite a challenging endevour to say the least. Especially when these adults decide to act like children some days. More and more I tend to look forward to the end of the day when I can go home to the peaceful atmosphere that allows me to unwind. I am sure my wife can identify with that since she is also a manager in a job that can be very stressful at times. I am a long time fan of two TV shows, Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. I love in interact with the show and try to solve the questions or puzzles before the contestents do which is fun and I like to think keeps my mind sharper. One of the more relaxing activities I have found recently is spending time at the blog page of Ree Drummond, a cookbook writer, photographer, wife and mother. Her site can be found at She will make you laugh, make your mouth water with her recipes and amaze you with her photography. Time to get this Wednesday started.
